MARETHCOLLEEN is the brainchild of Mareth van der Walt and Colleen Lesch, a forceful fashion duo that resides in Cape Town. A fully-fledged creative partnership and the production of a range of ready-to-wear women’s apparel.Using locally sourced talent and materials, the passionate pair produces a diverse range of quality garments. The range places a strong emphasis on intricate beadwork.
We always do hand beaded items and love incorporating them into our collections so when we went to visit the CBC brewery we found the interior and all the machinery’s shapes and metallic hues very inspirational. The gunmetal colours of the bottling line, silver stainless steel of the draft taps, tanks, copper lamps, golden amber of the Harvest Lager and the golden orange of the Mandarina Bavaria IPA. We decided to incorporate these colours and shapes into a hand beaded neckpiece. The sheer mesh top finishes off the look and adds a touch of femininity.
